also, notable that TDK was shut-out in the major categories (picture, director).

i think Heath will win, both this and the Oscar. first, because it will provide the ceremony with a sense of drama and poignancy, and give people a reason to watch on TV. it will be a "moment," like when Halle Berry won. second, it's a totally deserving performance, much like Berry's was. third, in retrospect, and with respect to PSH, Heath really should have won for BBM.

I'd be very surprised if she doesn't make Oscar's final five.


my uncle was raving about this movie over Thanksgiving. and Leigh movies tend to get acting nominations at the very least.

it looks like a very strong category this year, which means it was a good year for women's roles, which is a good thing.

Marion Cotillard hands down, deserved all the noms and wins she got last year.


I am a big fan of Kristen Scott Thomas, this film is not her best work at all.

There is one big scene, that the whole movie is built around.


I don't buy the main premise of the movie at all,
it is so not plausible, I found the movie some what disappointing.


I also, think Slumdog is over- rated.

Danny Boyle discovers - India

i do like that Danny Boyle -- whether good or not, his films are very vibrant. "trainspotting" remains one of my absolute favorite movies.

i plan to see "slumdog" as well.

Bollywood is vibrant

for me, the best part was the Bollywood dance scene during the closing credits, stay for that - very joyful.

I think Slumdog is good.

I just don't think it is the best movie of the year.

It would have made my top 20.

I'm surprised Milk and TDK didn't get much love in the Drama category. I highly doubt The Reader or any of the comedies will make the Oscar list.

James Franco for P.E.! Fuck yeah.

The only other real surprise there for me is Tom Cruise for Tropic Thunder. But that's great, since he was really the only thing I liked about that movie.

So all of the Best Drama movies for the whole year are just coming out now? It's weird to look at a list of nominees in December and realize I've hardly seen anything even though I am an avid and way above-average moviegoer. I do, however, live in a place that doesn't always get the new releases immediately.

I am surprised about Milk, but never felt The Dark Knight was going to do well here. They tend to go for period pieces, stuff like that.

Sounds like some of the porn Dalton watches, minus the violence.
